OUR ONLY TERMS: ‘OH JUST SHUT UP (SAID THE MASTER TO THE FOOL) B TRUMPST’

 The latest print by the artist FRINGE for February 2021 takes a side swipe at the world of big politics, and the spats that held humanity spellbound in the period preceding. Using the matrix of a vintage Sears almanac, a consumer guide from the times before, he describes the fall of the power of cash and the rise of the currency in its most fundamental form -- art.

The text asks us to address who the Master is at the helm of the new world order. And if we identify the master, then perhaps we can identify the fool. We wonder who is marching to the beat of whose drum?

The 1905 Sears Almanac provides the perfect backdrop to the text giving us cause for introspection: the artist questions when it all changed -- and when was cash suddenly not king. And therefore, FRINGE wonders, if it’s true that the most viable economy now is in the state of the art.
